(2003 - 2022)
Lewiston Youth Advisory Council Alum
A graduate of Lewiston High School (LHS), Omar was a member of the National Honor Society, the student government Vice President, and a member of the City of Lewiston Youth Advisory Council, Model United Nations, and Art Club, among involvement in other activities. He was part of the LHS Equity Resource Team working to increase equity and diversity and was also a mural painter who created and painted murals of all kinds at the school, with the aim of giving LHS its own unique style. Omar loved science and, in just three short months at Bowdoin College as a first-generation college student, he developed a keen interest in information technology and planned to major in computer science. Of his bigger dreams, he wrote, “I want to be someone anyone and everyone can rely on and can know that I will always be there to help.” At Bowdoin, he was a Questbridge and Geoffrey Canada Scholar and an active participant in the THRIVE program.
